Add another May Day march to the growing list for this Saturday. Locally based American Apparel announced this afternoon that they will join the cause and march from their downtown headquarters and factory to Broadway, joining up with the already-planned rally.

The company's Legalize L.A. marches are nothing new as the company directly experiences immigration issues first hand. In fact, they were the first business to be targeted in President Barack Obama's style of a non-immigration raid.

"This march is incredibly important to us as a company and as citizens of Los Angeles," the company said in an e-mailed statement to LAist. "There are millions of motivated and skilled immigrants actively participating in the cultural and economic success of L.A. and the United States who are forced to live in the shadows. Many of these people are friends and family of the company and we have and will continue to support them until there is change. We're going to be out in full force on Saturday, and we invite anyone else who wants to support the cause to join us."
